Thurman To Lead In New Thriller

Apple TV+ today announced that it had ordered a new thriller drama Suspicion, based on an award-winning Israeli series False Flag, which Apple bought the rights to last year.

The plot of the drama revolves around a prominent businesswoman (played by Uma Thurman) and the kidnapping of her son.

The crime is caught on video and goes viral. A bunch of Brits become the lead suspects, and the show asks whether the ‘suspicion’ is justified.

Here’s the official synopsis –

Suspicion is a high-paced thriller about the kidnapping of the son of a prominent American businesswoman, played by Uma Thurman. Twenty-one year-old Leo’s abduction from a large, upmarket hotel in central New York is captured on video and goes viral. Swiftly, four British citizens staying at the hotel become the prime suspects. But are they guilty of anymore than being in the wrong place at the wrong time?”

Rob Williams, who has been a writer/producer of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle and a writer of shows like Killing Eve and EastEnders, will serve as showrunner. Suspicion will be directed by Golden Globe-winner Chris Long, who has credits on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Smallville, The Mentalist, The Americans, and the AppleTV+ revival of Amazing Stories. Darin McLeod (HBO’s Watchmen) will produce.

Suspicion will star Uma Thurman, Kunal Nayyar, Noah Emmerich and Georgina Campbell among others. Apple did not announce a release date for the series at this time.
